Making A Difference

Posted: March 28, 2013 in Uncategorized

We live in a world of extremes, people think everything must be done big and that bigger is better! But, this week I was reminded how the smallest acts of kindness are the ones that make the biggest impact.

I was invited to a local middle school this Tuesday, to be part of a school assembly. They gave me the basic information, but I had no idea what I was heading into. And I was in awe. In awe of these incredible students who took an assignment and made it into a community impact. Their assignment: Pick a non-profit, research it and prepare a board to present it to others at their annual Make A Difference Fair. What they actually did: Raise over $7,000 for over 50 area non-profits! On top of that they learned, that making a difference in your community starts with a small idea and a big heart!

These young students truly made a difference. It wasn’t about their donation, although it was generous and we appreciate it so much, it was about the lesson they learned and the lessons they taught others. They learned that everyone can do the small things that it takes to change the world, one person at a time we can make a difference. These students taught us that as well, by being in the community, we are making a difference in the fight against drunk driving, one person at a time. How do we know that? Because there are students like these out there believing in the work we do and educating others on our mission. Together, we are all making a difference.

Today, we thank these young students and their teachers. We hope you know just how much your donation meant to us, and even more, we hope you know that you helped change the world.
